Countertenor


the highest male voice; in speaking and singing, countertenors have the normal range of a tenor, but are able, by singing in falsetto, to go higher, into the contralto/alto range, mezzo-soprano range, and, with the great ones, into the soprano range.

they are usually -ssigned roles written originally for the castratos, yanking those roles away from the contraltos.
is that a female alto singing…? it sounds different… it’s probably a countertenor.
